Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is becoming ever more popular with people realising that there are so many more options to achieve the smile they have always wanted. This often involves patients seeking out teeth straightening or teeth whitening options or sometimes both. One such popular treatment with an upsurge in popularity of late is the orthodontic treatment Invisalign.

Invisalign

This very discreet orthodontic technique involves the patient wearing a series of custom-made teeth aligners, which will slowly but surely move teeth into the desired position.

Each aligner is custom made, so it fits perfectly to your teeth and gums. The new aligners are then introduced every 2 weeks and these move the teeth into place. The whole treatment process is mapped out at the beginning, with the wearer being able to see by 3d imaging how their teeth will appear at the end of treatment.

The clear plastic aligners must be worn for approximately 22 hours per day for the treatment to take place effectively.

Advantages of Invisalign

  • They are almost invisible
  • They are removable for eating and cleaning the teeth
  • They are custom-made, so fit the teeth perfectly
  • They are deemed more comfortable than traditional metal braces and wires
  • You could take them out for a special occasion if required (although use for 22-24 hrs per day is recommended)
  • Treatment time is usually around 6-12 months, depending on what movement is required

Dental Implants

Another popular choice for teeth correction is dental implants. These are great if you have any missing teeth and they provide an excellent alternative to removable dentures. Teeth can be lost for a variety of reasons, including trauma, tooth infection, gum disease or decay. It can cause a real loss of confidence if you have lost any teeth. Not only that but it can cause problems with the surrounding teeth that are left. Unfortunately, the remaining teeth start moving into the gaps, and this can cause problems with a person’s bite, as well as leaving small pockets susceptible to food getting stuck, sometimes leading to infection.

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone using a local anaesthetic. These are then left to heal for a few months before a replacement crown or bridge can be added. The dental implants are strong and are the next best thing you are going to get to having your own, natural teeth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • You can eat your normal foods again
  • They often help with speech, which can slur or change due to missing teeth
  • They prevent shrinkage of the jawbone and keep the surrounding teeth in place
  • They are sturdy and will not move around in your mouth
  • They can significantly boost your self-confidence by restoring your smile

She offers hygiene appointments, which are designed to not only clean, scale and polish your teeth but educate the patient in to how to look after their teeth at home to continue practicing good oral hygiene habits in between dental appointments.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is on the rise as more and more people realise that if they don’t like their smile, they don’t have to just put up with it. There are so many more cosmetic dentistry treatments on the market these days, and more adults are undertaking teeth whitening and teeth straightening to achieve the smile they want. Below we explore these practices a bit further.

Orthodontics (teeth straightening)

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, then you may wish to look at teeth straightening options. Not only can orthodontic treatments improve the aesthetic appeal of the teeth, but it can also improve your bite and make them easier to clean. You will need to go and see a dentist and have a full examination, often including x-rays and making models of your teeth, before treatment starts.

Most teeth straightening is completed using a brace. This could be with a fixed brace, but these could feature clear or tooth-coloured wires and brackets, which are more discreet than traditional braces. There are other options, such as CFast, which are also very discreet and focus on the front teeth alone.

Invisible braces, such as Invisalign, are heavy duty but thin, transparent plastic aligners, which are usually changed every two weeks and gently move the teeth into the desired position. These aligners need to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day for best results. They can be removed for eating, drinking and cleaning teeth, which has made their popularity rise over recent years.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is very popular these days, and many celebrities are leading the way donning perfectly white teeth on our screens. This white teeth trend seems to be trickling down into public society, and many dentists now offer at least some form of teeth whitening in their practices.

Professional teeth whitening can be a very effective way of sprucing up your smile. It is safe to do but should be completed by a professional dentist and is no longer legal to perform in beauty salons or anywhere else.

Professional bleaching is the most popular method of teeth whitening. Your dentist will use specially tailored trays, like a mouth guard, which contain the whitening product to apply this to your teeth. You may then be given trays to take home to carry on your treatment.

The other main popular method of teeth whitening is lasers or power whitening. The whitening bleach product is still used, but a light or laser is shone directly onto the teeth to enhance and activate the product, which makes the teeth lightening process speed up. These treatments usually take around one hour.
